Essential MG tells the full story of this well loved sports car from its early days, covering developments in style, increases in power and its history in racing and speed trials.

The first MG cars were produced in Oxford, England, in 1924. The car was instantly appealing with a cheekiness of spirit that was to characterize the marque all its life, winning hearts of millions around the globe, not least in the United States. The price was as attractive as the styling and the performance. It was cheap and it was fun – quintessential MG traits. Many American servicemen heading for home after World War II took with them fond memories of the feisty little sports cars. This set the stage for much of MG’s postwar production being sold in the USA.

The style of motoring epitomized by the MG – direct steering, excellent road holding brakes and sensible – made it a great car for storming around the winding lanes of England as well as America’s back roads.

Large format hard back in good condition throughout. Clean dust wrapper, one small tear to top of spine.
